Old Probst Church, also known as Propst Lutheran Church, is a historic Lutheran church located near Brandywine, Pendleton County, West Virginia. It was built about 1887, and is a rectangular frame building with clapboard siding on a cut stone foundation. The church was in use until 1920, then renovated starting in 1968 for use as a community center. The surrounding property includes the site of the first church, built about 1769. A second log church building was removed from the site in 1885, and used as a house, and later a barn.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
